It’s no secret that I’m a huge Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill fan. I NEVER visit the Orlando area without having a meal at Wolfgang Puck! It seems to me that the meals get better and better each time.
Wolfgang Puck Disney Springs
Once again Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill is at the top of my fine dining list when at Disney Springs or in the Walt Disney World area.
Wolfgang Puck and Disney are not strangers. Visitors have been enjoying Wolfgang Puck Express and/or Wolfgang Puck Cafe at Disney Springs for a long time. As I predicted shortly after this location opened, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill is the perfect growth of the relationship and a true hit for Disney Springs.
In the spirit of transparency, my daughter is one of the chefs at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. That being said – some of you may think I’m slightly biased with this review. However, those of you that have read my reviews over the years know that my reviews are always honest. I was giving Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill high marks and five stars before she had the good fortune to become part of the Wolfgang Puck family.
During this time with limited capacity and smaller menus due to the pandemic, many of our favorite restaurants seem to be struggling. Staffs have been cut, seating capacity cut, strict pandemic guidelines are in place. WPBG seems to be shining through all of this. The staff appears to be taking it all in stride – making this their new normal.
Upon arrival, checking in at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill is always quick and easy. You are always met by a friendly member of the host/hostess staff. I have never waited more than a few short minutes after checking in before being seated.
Once seated the service at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill is always top notch. Every server is attentive (without being intrusive). The servers allow enough time for you to make a decision about cocktails and/or meals, but at the same time you don’t feel as if you have been left for very long.
One of the first things you will notice is the open kitchen design. This design in other restaurants can be annoying because of kitchen noise. I’m always amazed that I never hear any noise from the open kitchen at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. It is not a distraction as it is in some other restaurants.
Depending on where you are seated, the pizza oven is also something you can’t miss!
The pizzas here are fabulous and something I always add to my meal for everyone at the table to share. Pizza makes a great appetizer too! Sharing one of their pizzas between a few people lets you have a taste of one of Wolfgang’s pizzas and not spoil your meal!
As much as I want to try many different things on the menu when I visit, I often find myself going back to one of my very favorite meals. Who can pass up freshly made pasta created in-house? None of the pasta dishes EVER disappoint!
One thing is certain – you will never leave Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill hungry. Or thirsty! The restaurant offers a large list of cocktails, wines and beers, as well as delicious “mocktails” for those that don’t indulge. Many of the wines are offered by the glass or the bottle.
Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Disney Springs is an excellent choice for good food and atmosphere. The menu, even during this limited time, has many great options and the service is outstanding.
We all must continue to understand that since reopening after the pandemic shut-down, many restaurants have lost staff – both server and kitchen staff. Many are operating with half the staff they had in place pre-pandemic. The fact that Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, as well as other restaurants in the area, can maintain good food, good turn-around times, and good service with limited staff is outstanding.
